Twitter is one of the world's most frequented social networking websites and also an integral part of a lot of our online interaction. Most trends on the internet have started on Twitter and the micro-blogging interface encourages celebrities to get onboard and join the conversation.
If you have an Android phone, chances are you are quite fed up with the limited functionality on the official Twitter app for Android. Worry no more because we have just the perfect curated list of alternatives that you can use.
Here are the top 5 Twitter clients that will improve your experience on an Android smartphone.
A freemium app on the Play Store, HootSuite, is a one-stop solution for all your social media needs. This app syncs to all the major social apps-Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram-and lets you control them on a central hub. While it takes some time to get used to, HootSuite is great for increasing your productivity. There are even some in-app purchases to help you go into the analytics part of your social media accounts.
One of the best Twitter clients for Android is Plume. Although priced quite steeply at $4.99, Plume has been around for the longest time and is known for quickly adapting to the changes in User Interface that Android brings in with every update. Sporting the beautiful Material Design currently, Plume contains numerous customization options and the integration with other apps is also seamless.
Carbon for Twitter
Carbon is a free app on Android and is completely different from all the other options on this list. It is a veteran in the Twitter client alternatives with a unique dark theme. Along with the trademark design, Carbon also has features like a do not disturb mode, a neat look and multi-account support. It is completely free (no ads, too!) and a dream to use.
Fenix for Twitter
Another one of the premium apps, Fenix speaks of elegance. While it is new to the game, Fenix doesn't let you feel like that for even a second. It sports the latest Material Design and comes with all the options like multi-account support, mute hashtags & users and access to different themes - light, dark and true black. This is truly a seamless experience but the only thing that might stop you from using it is the steep price tag.
TinFoil for Twitter
Tinfoil for Twitter is a unique client with a different kind of take on user experience. This actually isn't a pure Twitter app but rather a type of mobile app, something that's called a ‘wrapper'. This app accesses the Twitter mobile site and allows you to use it without having to open your browser. This gives you a ‘Lite' experience without giving asking for any permissions. While it is good for such users who love their privacy, keep in mind it is not an app-like experience on TinFoil.
